    Specially to someone the makes HUGE losses and where your payment is probably more to keep them now alive.

    How could I miss this one too?

    “It’s one thing to have a quirky, problematic car that sells 20,000 units per year to wealthy people who probably own at least one backup vehicle,” the report concluded. “It’s quite another when Tesla scales up to its 2020 projection of 200,000 U.S. Model 3 buyers, who may not have the luxury of being so forgiving.”

    Was wondering what the model was .. and was a bit too lazy to look it up. Explains the "i've seen this shape before".

    But like I said in another thread - most over engineered cars will have a common / perfect aerodynamic shape.

    is there a government site confirming all charging points? is the parking/charging period in a mall subsided or do you have to pay the standard rate? are there any actual traditional petrol/lpg stations which has been retrofitted with charging points
    What do you do when there is no petrol station in your estate?

    There are quite a few superchargers around Hong Kong and they are free. Look on Tesla website. The car charges in 20-30 minutes and can last 400km (a month or more). You only need to charge once a month while you are at the supermarket or coffee shop. Your iphone will tell you when the car is charged and off you go..

    The front zone is apparently storage space - never knew that!

    Yes, it is called the "frunk".

    Very useful to put shopping or smaller bags into quickly.

    If you have a dual motor setup some of the frunk space is used up, but it is still perfectly useable*.

    *Based on Model S experience to date.
